Apprenticeship: One concept, many facets Description
This special edition is based on papers delivered at a conference of the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship (INAP), a network of researchers and practitioners interested in apprenticeship and related issues. The theme of the conference was Architectures for apprenticeship: Achieving economic and social goals. The papers in this volume are selected from the best of the 34 full papers and keynote speeches presented.
Since that first special edition in 2009, the Global Financial Crisis has prompted many countries to consider apprenticeship as a means of preventing and ameliorating youth unemployment, and yet apprenticeship has distinct economic and pedagogical goals as well as social goals. Participants in the conference had a particular interest in policy, with the largest single number of papers appearing in the policy stream. For the special issue, however, we selected papers which represented a wide range of aspects of apprenticeship.
